Rep. Keith Ellison: This pro-corporate bill doesn’t need a fast track

clee January 23, 2014 0

USAction is partnering with Rep. Ellison and Democracy for America to stop the TPP. Check out the below note from Rep. Keith Ellison (D, MN-05) Co-Chair, Congressional Progressive Caucus and take action

As Co-Chair of the Progressive Caucus, I know that without clear, congressional oversight, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will become another job-killing trade agreement that benefits big corporations at the expense of everyone else.

Congress must fully consider the impacts the TPP will have on working Americans. We cannot afford to rush through another NAFTA that values corporate profits above families.

Please take a second and tell Congress to say NO to fast-track and instead fully vet the TPP.

It’s only a matter of time before an army of corporate lobbyists hits the halls of the Capitol. But our numbers can beat their dollars every time.

Your voice is critical. In 2002, 2 votes out of 435 made the difference between victory and defeat for fast-track authority for smaller trade deals. You can help us save American jobs by speaking up today.

With so much at stake, Congress can’t give away its right to advocate for working families. 

Join DFA and USAction in urging Congress to say NO to fast-track trade authority. Click here and add your name to the petition now.

Thanks for all you do.

– Keith
